PHA Suspending Evictions, Offering Waivers

March 16, 2020

Evictions

Effective immediately, PHA has suspended all evictions for thirty (30) days. PHA will be postponing all court appointments where residents have failed to pay rent. Residents are still required to pay rent.

 

Hardship Rent Abatement

If a resident has experienced a financial hardship, such as the loss of a job or decrease in hours or pay, they can apply for a hardship waiver of their rent that will be made retroactive from the date of the hardship event.

 

Cleaning and Safety

On Wednesday, March 11, 2020, PHA distributed over 6,000 letters to all residents residing at our senior developments communicating the safety precautions we are taking on their behalf.

These efforts include:

 The installation of new hand sanitizer dispensers containing hand sanitizers at all senior locations.

 PHA has implemented a specialized weekly deep cleaning procedure at all senior facilities, which is expected to continue indefinitely.

 

Hardship Rent Abatement

Housing Choice Voucher (formerly Section 8) clients who have experienced a financial hardship due to COVID-19 virus, such as the loss of a job or decrease in wages, can apply for a hardship waiver of rent, which will be made retroactive from the date of the hardship event.
